    • Home school families are invited to participate in Work & Play: 1860s Style Thursday, April 26 or Friday, April 27. Sessions are offered each day: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

    • Saturday, April 28 at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Sunday, April 29 at 2 p.m. This old-fashioned melodrama for the whole family is packed with more fiction than fact but a whole lot of fun that gives Olathe's history with the 'roundabout!' The performances are brought to you by the Olathe Civic Theater Association and take place on the historic Mahaffie grounds.
